This guide details minimum protection features for Air Force facilities containing electronic equipment, including, but not limited to, command and control, flight control, weapons control, missile control, intelligence, data, and telecommunications. It applies to all new construction, renovation, modernization, and rehabilitation of facilities for all electronic equipment installations. Facilities that contain mission-essential and mission-critical information technology equipment are provided with gradually increasing layers of fire protection features to provide the greatest opportunity to protect the equipment and retain mission continuity.
This guidance implements the general criteria in UFC 3-600-01 Fire Protection Engineering for Facilities. It amends Chapters 2 through 9 of ANSI/TIA-942-B, Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centers, related to fire protection.
